Amy Hamilton-Thibert, a 28-year-old mother from Astoria, Queens, New York is one of my current S-heros. Erik Baard writing for the The Village Voice tells her story in an this article "BUNNY BUSTERS KMART CALLS COPS WHEN EASTER RABBIT PROTESTS MILITARY-THEMED HOLIDAY BASKETS"
Amy says: "This is the first time I've chosen to actively commit civil disobedience in a very obvious, solitary way. I have no regrets. I'm absolutely pleased with the outcome," she said of her first arrest.
Full Metal Bonnet - Retailers Put All Their Grenades in One Basket opens with:
While Pentagon war planners may be gunning for an attack on Iraq by mid March, heavily armed soldiers have already quietly seized a strategic position: your Easter basket. National retailers like Kmart and Walgreens have stocked their shelves with baskets in which the traditional chocolate rabbit centerpiece has been displaced by plastic military action figures and their make-believe lethal paraphernalia. Tri-state Rite Aid, Genovese, and Wal-Mart stores promise their martial Easter baskets will arrive soon.
I found another article
Walgreens is retreating from plans to sell packaged Easter baskets in which toy soldiers and other war toys are nestled among chocolate bunnies and other traditional candies.
The country's biggest drugstore chain will pull from shelves the cellophane-wrapped, woven baskets that include toys such as troops in battle dress, assault rifles, planes and tanks. Other giant retailers, including Wal-Mart and Kmart, will continue to sell baskets that feature war toys.
OK so now I understand why Easter Bunnies were banned from the White House Annual Easter Egg Hunt. GW might have had to pull out of Iraq!
I call upon the Bunny Power to bring our troops home and end the insanity!
